Plain old fashioned non-airtight stoves- no.
MMMM, I think they are. Around here at least, you are not supposed to install them. If you need a cert. from the fire dept. for your homeowner's insurance, and the fire dept. won't sign off on a non-EPA stove...........it may depend on your state & specific city/town.

I seriously doubt if all the wood stoves in America put out .05% as much smoke in a year as one Colorado forest fire does in one day. It's just more "control the people" crap.

I'm sorry, but that's incorrect. Ignorance is a product of the Department of Education. Never say that govt doesn't produce anything.

The EPA and state environmental agencies have been going after wood stoves for at least 20 years. The fireplace insert in our 20 year old house has a catalytic combuster.

Well the EPA does regulate the amount of water a toilet can flush.
Yep, blame the US congress for that one. In 1992 the US congress passed the Energy Policy Act; regulating flush toilets: Bush I signed it into law. Rather than regulate the use of water by golf courses, car washes, and other real water wasters; the golf playing US congress went after flush toilets.

Quote:
Since 1994, new toilets cannot use more than 1.6 gallons per flush (gpf), less than half the 3.5 gpf of previous models. New shower heads must not emit more than 2.5 gallons per minute, also a sharp decline from what consumers had come to prefer. The stated purpose for these tough federal mandates is "to conserve water" through arbitrary limits on water use.

I know that some areas of the country (Colorado especially) you cannot get a building permit to install ANYTHING that burns solid fuel- but in all fairness, air quality in the Denver Metro area sucks big time.

With the Fire Marshall, not so much is stove is EPA listed, but if it is UL listed. UL does safety, EPA air quality. There ARE pollution production standards for airtight stoves- have been for over 20 years. But none for non-airtight stoves, which burn hotter and quicker.

Its not too difficult to knock up a basic stove from an old gas bottle.
